Transformers The Last Knight movie review

Have you ever taken a moment to notice that Transformers movie editing is taking a back seat to the mentality of sandbox logic play these days?

Do you know why critics hate Michael Bay‘s Transformers film franchise? Because the final, edited product that hits theaters is crap. The final editing is so bad in most of these films that I must surmise that Michael Bay and his production teams must not give a crap about the movie-goer.

Transformers toys, movies and more…

Warning, a few The Last Knight spoilers ensue, here and there. Nothing big, but still…

Don’t get me wrong, it’s obvious that Michael Bay loves making a specific kind of action film and it shows. But the way they construct the final product of the scripted story feels like they come up with different plot points and haphazardly shove them into his action filming.

But the problem is not necessarily the editing. The real problem is that while film consumers continue to spend money to go see the movies and buy the latest toys, Paramount, Hasbro and Bay have no reason to improve upon the issue. Period.

But more than the critics are taking note, considering that it’s made almost $270 million domestically in its first 10 days or so, but it’s strongest fan base has given it a 5.3/10 on IMDb, while the critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes sits at a paltry 15%.

Let me demonstrate what I’m seeing.

In Transformers The Last Knight we seemed to have a multitude of different stories and franchise plot points with our focus jumping back and forth between these different stories. And to be honest, that’s fine. There was a lot to tell that ranged from character and society updates from the last film, to the new stories, characters and events introduced in this film.
